Too tight on my thighs
December 25, 2010

Now I'm now body builder or even a runner with massive thighs. Infact, I find that my thighs are normal to small comared to others my size. I got the mediums in these shorts because they fit my waist and all. However, like anothe reviewer here said, they are so tight around the thighs to the extent they are not very comfortable at all. They are also cut really high in the thigh which makes it more like a eropean feeling bathing suit style boxer short. In the end, I don't think these ake the cut in my mind and I will be sending them back to look for something that fts better like the ExOfficio or Smartwool.

Cons: Cost, Bad design

I Give these an above average rating because the fabric is wonde
June 15, 2010

I Give these an above average rating because the fabric is wonderful and it does everything as promised. But it feels more like a sweater than a boxer and the waistband does not stay at the hips, it rises. I am going to stick with the Smartwool boxers.

These are nicely made boxers. They fit true to size and are of a nicer quality than any other wool boxers that I own. They stay put and don't ride up, a big plus. They are spendy but I can see owning another pair of these.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Excellent quality. On the small side
May 27, 2011

Others have said these run small. I will echo that thought. I wear medium in nearly any garment or brand Mediums in these were really small. The larges are very snug too. Part of this is by design, and I like how these fit, but I think I could also be comfortable in a XL. The material is awesome. Very comfortable feel. I really like the stretchy-ness of these compared to normal wool boxers-briefs. They feel very robust too, compared to 150g garments, but they aren't overly thick or hot. Just right. Breathe great. Exactly what I was looking for.

These shorts fit nice and snug but don't crowd, if you know what I mean. They really are the perfect shorts. No stink, dry fairly quickly, don't chafe, soft soft merino, no stink...

One of the Best Wool Boxers out there
November 06, 2011

Great waistband on these puppies! The material is very high quality, much thicker and durable than any smartwool. They wick moisture when you need it and the keep you warm when you need it. Prevents any chaffing and I could not smell a thing after a week long adventure in the Trinity Alps.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
